Sirit's IDentity MaX Arrives in Europe



    ETSI compliant version of Parking and Access Control solution aimed at
    new market

    BIRMINGHAM, UK, April 17 /CNW/ - Sirit Inc. ("Sirit") (TSX: SI), a
leading provider of radio frequency identification (RFID) technology, today
introduced the European (ETSI compliant) version of its market leading
IDentity MaX UHF RFID reader for use in secure parking and vehicle access
control deployments.
    Offering superior performance characteristics, the European version of
the IDentity MaX' integrated reader and antenna design operates at the 865-868
MHz band and delivers solid Automatic Vehicle Identification ("AVI")
performance for single-lane read applications.
    Encased in a weather-proof enclosure, weighing approximately 5.5 kg and
measuring 31 centimetres by 25 centimetres, the IDentity MaX fits into the
smallest installation footprints and seamlessly integrates into commercially
available third party access systems. With Power over Ethernet capabilities, a
single cable can carry both power and data communications making the IDentity
MaX well suited for either retrofit or new facility installations. The MaX
delivers read ranges of up to ten feet using the new IDentity MaXpass
transponder (credit card form factor) allowing access permission without
having to stop the vehicle.
    "Answering calls from our distributors and system integrator partners for
a European version of the IDentity MaX, we are pleased to introduce Sirit and
our Parking and Access solutions to a new market," said John Freund, Vice
President, AVI Solutions, Sirit Inc. "Sirit has received tremendous interest
within North and South America even expanding beyond traditional parking and
access control applications and we are confident that the ETSI version will be
equally successful."
    Early production units are now available through Sirit's global
distribution network of leading parking and access control integrators and
service providers. Sirit will showcase the IDentity MaX as well as its global
suite of AVI products at Parkex 2007 Conference, National Exhibition Centre -
Booth A115, Birmingham, UK from April 17 - 19, 2007.
